Tourism

Turin may be lesser known than Rome, Florence or Venice, but the capital of the Piedmont is a beautiful city in a unique location: close to the Alps, bordering the famous wine regions of the Langhe and the Astigiano, and not too far from the seaside either.

In Turin, you find numerous first-class museums, such as the Museo Egizio (the most important museum of Egyptian civilization outside Cairo) or the Museo Nazionale del Cinema within the Mole Antonelliana. The spectacular residences of the House of Savoy,  whose members rose from local noblemen to Dukes of Savoy to Kings of Sardinia and later Italy, are part of the UNESCO world heritage. Most frequently visited are the the Versailles-like Veneria Reale and the Palazzo Reale/Musei Reali in the heart of the city center. Finally, you can walk up to the Basilica di Superga, built after the successful relief of the city in the  1706 siege, and enjoy the breathtaking view over the plain and the Alps. Extending your stay is therefore highly recommended.
